This is another good point. I suspect the situation of profit-sharing is much worse now than it was some years ago.

I know at least one person who still gets patent dividends for work they did (IIRC for HP) in the '70s and '80s. The problem he has is trying to cash a US cheque in the UK; for the amounts involved, it's often just not worth it.
